AWS Device Farm is an application testing service that provides web and mobile developers with desktop browsers and real mobile devices so that they can improve the quality of their apps. With today’s launch, we are rolling out a new backend for our Android mobile device testing that provides reduced test start times, better Remote Access performance, simpler dependency management, and support for the latest software like Appium 2. With just a few changes to your test configuration, you can take advantage of these improvements to get your test results faster and with less effort configuring your environment.

You can review our Migration Guide for details on how to use the new backend, which is available in the US West (Oregon) region.
